Joann Eason-Sappington
On Jan. 14, 4, 2014, our Heavenly Father called a beautiful angel home.

Joann Elaine Eason-Sappington, born on March 25, 1944, in Nyssa, Ore., joined her father, mother and sister in heaven. Her life was full of love and pride for her family. She lived life to the fullest while making sure all her loved ones were well taken care of through her kind and giving nature.

Her feisty attitude will be remembered and missed by all.

She leaves behind her loving husband Donald, daughters Leesa (Mark) Dexter, Laura (Glen) Dexter and Cassandra (Dirk) Dykstra; son John (Kelly) Sappington and extended family, daughter Katie Dexter as well as her furry companion Charlie Brown.

Her love for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren was immense and each was treasured beyond compare.

She is also survived by her sister Earlene Dexter, Grant (Donna) Eason, Donnie (Sam) Eason, Bob (Colleen) Eason and many nieces and nephews she dearly loved.

She will forever be in our hearts and souls and greatly missed.

A memorial service will be held Wednesday, Jan. 22 at 1 p.m. at Winnemucca Christian Fellowship, 4380 Grass Valley Road in Winnemucca.

Graveside service will be held Saturday, Jan. 25 at 1 p.m. at the Wilder Idaho Cemetary.
